The Kids Dentist is a dental practice providing specialised dentistry for infants, children and adolescents in Singapore. The Kids Dentist recommeds that every child visits the dentist by his/her 1st birthday, as advocated by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. This is to avoid potential oral health care problems in your child.
Parents do play a role in making the first visit for their child to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist will count and clean his/her teeth. The dentist will also show him/her how to care for their teeth. It is best not to use words such as needle, pain, drill or hurt around your child as it might cause unnecessary fear. The Kids Dentist makes it a practice to use words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child.
Your child's first visit will include a complete examination performed by our paediatric dentists. Radiographs (x-rays) may be obtained of your child's teeth if necessary. You are encouraged to accompany your child into the examination room. Following the clinical examination, our dentists will advise you on the appropriate treatment required for your child and answer any questions you may have.
While visiting our clinic, your child is welcome to enjoy the toys, books, TV games as well as watch DVD movies while sitting on the dental chair.
